    'Empire' to end after Season 6 with 'no plans' to bring Jussie Smollett back

    There will be a season 6. JS will not be on season 6.
    Season 6 is the LAST season for the show ‘Empire’. Then it will be reruns and reruns, maybe. IMO the show will not be going into reruns right away. Maybe shelved for a few years,

    IMO, what JS was involved in got the show cancelled, put his acting friends out of a job after Season 6. IMO he doesn’t not really care. He just hopes he gets out of testifying in any heatings for Foxx.

    Ah, thank you. Well, that is surprising and thoughtful on the part of the network. This way the creators have ample time to conclude their stories without leaving things unresolved for viewers.

    So, I guess since it’s been four months since this charade took place, the postal inspector came up with nothing re the fake letter?

    Jussie really should get best acting award imo. Best acting I’ve seen in a long time. Look at the mess he’s made. It’s only fair he should pay the price.

    I guess that the "White Powder" letter investigation was just dropped into a round filing bin. Seems like that entire situation disappeared. Using the federal mail system for a terrorist attack with white powder, just goes away...that takes some very high political clout.

    This article has an excellent timeline for the Smollett case.
    A Complete Timeline of the Jussie Smollett Case

    It looks like the next drama in this case will be...
    1. Unsealing the court records.
    2. Ongoing litigation by city of Chicago for financial damages.
    3. The federal lawsuit by the Osundario (?), brothers for defamation.

    I am particularly interested in the court case that was dropped, Jussie was supposed to do some "community service", as far as I know, that does not include things done previously. And Jussie left immediately for Hawaii, then moved to California...how many hours of "Community Service" did he perform and where was it done?

    I think that will be interesting to watch, because courts are usually sticklers for "Community Service", like you do it, or face a sentence. If they let Smollett slide out of that, it has ramifications for other cases involving "Community Service".

    This entire case has "ramifications", some we haven't even dreamed of. IMO

    If anything is to come of this, they need to get the investigation out of Cook County. Illinois machine politics are largely controlled by Cook County.

    Ironically JS served his "16 hours of community service" the days (Sat & Mon) before the case was heard in court on Tuesday and settled. Jesse Jackson Sr. lauded Jussie Smolette's service as "one of the most impactful community service volunteers they've ever worked with".........
    Article below explains details.:mad:

    Smells like the deal was highly brokered days before it officially went before the judge.

    That is interesting. Nothing can be "done" before the case is actually determined by a judge, but what confuses me, is that the charges against Smollett were dropped...but he was still required to do community service? That is not the norm, but none of this fits the "norm".

    16 hours? That is actually laughable.

    Most first time offenders, and BTW, this is considered the 2nd time Smollett has lied to LEO, most offenders are also ordered to mandatory psychological treatment, to "cure" their "Thinking Errors".

    Cook County....whatever.

    From @Puzzles8 link:
    How about advancing the human rights of people who aren’t politically connected and aren’t big fat law-breaking liars?

    So it turns out he didn’t even offer to bless PUSH with the presence of his amazing royal smugness, THEY had to reach out to HIM?

    He simply can’t dial back the smugness, can he?

    Well f*ck a doodle doo, why was it considered court-ordered community service, then?

    I can’t even wrap my head around all of this Tom Foolery.

    Apparently there IS a God of morons, who keeps them safely ensconced outside my circle of b*tch-slappery.​

    Onetime Michelle Obama staffer evades subpoena in Smollett-Foxx case, process server says

    Onetime Michelle Obama staffer evades subpoena in Smollett-Foxx case, process server says

    In an email to former Illinois appellate judge Sheila O'Brien obtained by Fox News, the process server wrote that a security guard at the Chicago law firm where Tchen is a partner "called up to her and spoke with her and she said that she in [sic] never going to accept service and to not allow me up to their Law firm.

    "She knows all about this Subpoena," the server added.


    "I don’t know why she’d turn it [the subpoena] down, she’ll be served eventually," Ryan told the paper.

    What a fine example of a stellar citizen, lawyer, and former White House staffer. I await paparazzi photos of her skulking about back alleys while being pursued by a process server.

    All of this for Jussie Smollett?

    I would love to be the person serving her subpoena. I’d drop down from the ceiling of her office like Spider-Man, or pop out of the air conditioning duct.

    I'm finding it harder and harder to read about this case. It seems to me we're having third world BS shoved down our throats and no one can stop them, hold them accountable?

    This is really true. What blows me away, is how many people are involved in this situation. This is big. I wonder if there will actually be a full investigation? And it surprises me that anyone would get involved in this mess.

    How does a licensed attorney, sworn to uphold the law, evade a subpoena? Time for the Illinois Bar Association to be involved. Ms. Tschen can't just say, "No, I don't want a subpoena.". That isn't how it works for the rest of us...
